The flowers are orange with white stripes. Buds are shiny, solid orange.
The shrubs grow to 6 feet; these were divided from the original which
was crowded by an oak, years ago.
Of Asian origins, pomegranates are not native but highly decorative.
These have no fruit. I've never even seen a tiny seed fruit.
The flowers fade and drop. The only explanation I can think of is
that it may be climate related.
These are a welcome sight, coming after the big show of azaleas and before
small summer ornamentals like Vitex and Crape Myrtle.
